the Earth, and 700 times greater than that of all the bodies re- 
volving around it.

The Moon's diameter is 2,160 miles, and her volume _L. of that 
of the Earth. She revolves in her orbit once in 29^ days, at a 
distance of 240,000 miles from the Earth. 

The Asteroids number 72, of which 10 were discovered in 1861. 
Leverrier estimates that their aggregate mass does not exceed one- 
third of that of the Earth, 

Apparent Time, is time reckoned by the revolutions of the Sun 
from the meridian to the meridian again. These intervals being 
unequal, of course the apparent solar days are unequal to each 
other. ■ ■ • 

Mean Time, is time reckoned by the average length of all the 
solar days throughout the year. This is the period which consti- 
tutes the civil day of 24 hours. .

TIDES OF THE PACIFIC COAST.

i 






TIDES OF THE PACIFIC COAST. 

On the Pacific coast, there is, as a general rule, one large and 
one small tide during each day; the height of two successive 
high-waters occurring one a. m., the other p. m. of the same 
twenty-four hours, and the intervals from the next preceding 
transit of the moon are very different. The inequalities depend 
upon the moon's declination ; they disappear near the time of the 
moon's declination, being nothing, and are greatest about the time 
of its being greatest. The inequalities for low water are not the 
same as for high, though they disappear and have the • greatest 
value at nearly the same times. 

In Piiget Sound, the inequalities for the interval of high water 
and for the height of low water follow this rule, but those for the 
interval of low water and height of high water disappear about 
one day before the moon's declination is greatest, and are greatest 
about four or five days before the greatest declination. 

When the moon's dechnation is north, the highest of the two 
tides of the twenty-four hours occurs at San Francisco about 
eleven and one-half hours after the moon's southing (transit), and 
when the declination is south, the lowest of the two high tides 
occurs about that interval. The lowest of the two low waters of 
the day is the one which follows next the highest high water. 

To obtain the times of high or low water for Monterey, South 
Farallone, Mare Island, Benicia, Ravenswood, and Bodega, Ijnd the 
time for San Francisco, then subtract 1 h. 44 m. for Monterei/, 
1 h. 29 m. for the South Farallone, and 49 m. for Bodega ; and add 
84 m. for Mare Island, 1 h. 4 m. for Benicia, and 80 m, for 
Ravenswood. 

For Humboldt Bay, Port Orford and Neeah Bay, find the tiine 
for Astoria, then subtract 40 m. for Humboldt Bay, 1 h, 16 m, fQp 
Port Orford, and 9 m, for Neeah Bay. 

For Steilacoom and Semiahmoo Bay, find the time for Port 
Townsend, and add to it 5*7 m. for Steilacoom, and 1 hour for 
Semiahmoo. The approximation will only be a rough one for 
Steilacoom.

MKTEOROLOGY OF THK UNITKD STATES AND TKUEITORIES ON THE 

PACIFIC. 

The regions bordering on the equator are the hottest on the 
earth, owing to the sun being nearest to their zenith ; from which 
to the poles, the temperature diminishes, other things being equal, 
proportionally as these points are approached. Owing to this cir- 
cumstance, an upper current is found constantly flowing from the 
equator to the two poles, and a lower one from the poles to the 
equator ; the latter becoming heated, ascends and returns toward 
the extremities of the terrestrial axes. 

As the diameters of the parallel circles diminish as they recede 
from the equator, and as all parts situated in the same meridian 
make a complete revolution round the axis of the earth in twenty- 
four hours, it follows that they move with a velocity much greater 
as the points are nearer to the equatorial line. In the northern 
hemisphere, as the upper and heated atmosphere proceeds toward 
the north, it gets more and more in advance of the earth's rotatory 
motion ; the combination of this motion from the west toward 
the east, combined with the original direction from south to north, 
occasions a southwest wind. 

Within the torrid zone, a considerable portion of the heat trans- 
mitted by the rays of the sun is absorbed by the waters of the 
ocean, occasioning an immense evaporation, and consequently low- 
ering the temperature of that portion of the earth. The rarefied 
air of the torrid zone, charged with moisture, becomes gradually 
cooled on passing into a higher latitude, and consequently con- 
densed, thus giving rise to clouds and eventually to rain ; contem-

poraneously with this condensation, whether exhibited in the form 
of cloud, mist, or rain, heat is evolved ; a more eciuable temperature 
is thus given to the various parts of the earth. Such are the chief 
laws which regulate climate ; but they more correctly apply to 
what may be termed oceanic climate. Considerable variations occur 
when high mountain ranges or extended plains, singly or conjointly, 
contribute to change the normal conditions. In California both 
these circumstances are found, as well as others, which have an 
important bearing on its climate ; one of the principal of which is, 
the immense current of moisture and saturated air which flows from 
the trc ics over the Gulf of California and the low-lying coast of 
Sonora, &c., into the great plain between the Sierra Nevada and 
the Rocky Mountains. In this way the greater part of the mois- 
ture-laden winds from the equator is deflected from California, as 
our valleys becoming heated usually give rise to a direct west 
wind, which, although charged with moisture, as evidenced by the 
great fog banks daily seen on the coast range, is speedily dissipated 
on entering into the warmer atmosphere found within the valleys 
which lie between the coast range and the Sierra Nevada. The 
reverse of this takes place when a southerly wind blows, especially 
those ranging from southeast to southwest ; in such cases a warm, 
saturated atmosphere invades a comparatively cold one, then rain 
is precipitated ; and this is particularly seen in the torrent-like char- 
acter of the rain storms which are witnessed on the Sierra Nevada, 
from Mariposa to the Tejon Pass. Unfortunately, no record has 
ever bem kept of the rain-fall in this region ; in some parts it must 
have been enormous, probably more than 200 inches perpendicular 
for the entire wet season of six months. A correspondent of one 
of the San Francisco papers, writing from Visalia, and alluding to 
lumber, states as follows : 

" The latter article is rather scarce here just now, owing to the 
destruction of all the saw mills by the floods, Avhich seem to have 
been of a terrific nature on the foot-hills composing the lumber 
region. From Mr. Thomas, who with his brother lost two mills, I 
learn that the water in many of the ravines rose to a perpendicular 



NOTABILIA OF THE FLOODS OF 1861-'C2.

height of seventy feet, and that hundreds of immense phies, being 
uprooted, were so ground up that they reached the plains as fine 
as saw-dust. A huge boiler from one of their mills was carried 
many miles, and most of the massive iron works have never since 
been seen." 

Whilst it seldom rains in Lower California, in Oregon and Wash- 
ington Territory tremendous rains occur, and the ordinary rainy 
season commences sooner and terminates later, both in the sister 
State and the northern Territory ; in fact, the northern portion of 
California, so far as rain is concerned, possesses a not dissimilar 
climate to that of Oregon. When the northeast winds bring rain, it 
is probable that the northeast parts of California are deluged with 
heavier rains than the sister State or Washington Territory. No 
return nor any o'stimate has been made of the rain-fall last year in 
Washington Territory, but general rumor has described the fall as 
having been very heavy. Perhaps, on the average, a greater fall 
took place there, than in either Oregon or California ; though prob- 
ably in no place so low or high as that of some localities in the 
latter State, where, doubtless, the extremes have occurred, the 
lowest probably being on the plains of the Sacramento and San 
Joaquin, and the highest at about 5,000 feet elevation above the 
level of the sea, on the Sierra Nevada, lying westwardly from the 
line of Mariposa to the Tejon Pass. 

The great plain and morass watered by the Sacramento and San 
Joaquin, is the recipient of all the waters which fall upon an area 
whose extent is equal very nearly to that of England proper, and 
in geographical position appears to be placed, when taken in con- 
nection with the southern counties, as intermediate between an 
extremely dry (Lower California) and an extremely wet country, 
the latter being composed of the northern counties of California 
and the United States Territories to the north. It may easily be 
conceived that, from this peculiar position, the amount of aridity 
or humidity between any given years may be exceedingly discrep- 
ant. Thus a tradition exists among the Indians, that during one 
year not a drop of rain fell in central California, whilst the con-

verse of this is also reported, namely, that heavier rains and floods 
than have been witnessed during 18(j1-'()2, have been known. The 
truth of the latter is greatly corroborated by the fact, that marks 
exist on trees, growing in the San Joaquin valley, showing that a 
former flood had been fully six feet higher. Mr. Robert B. Randal, 
of Crescent ('ity, has kindly informed me "that the first flood 
(18»U-'62) was some forty feet higher than the usual stages of 
water at Bradford's Ford on Smith River. From the bank at that 
place, the ground has a gradual rise in a northerly direction, and 
was overflowed a mile or more ; from this high-water mark, and a 
quarter of a mile in the same direction, are several drift logs, 
evidently deposited by a former and still higher flood. * * * 
The Indians have it that this former flood occurred about forty 
years since ;" — possibly contemporaneous with that, tlie evidences 
of which are still to be witnessed in the San Joaquin valley. The 
latter fact has been attempted to be explained away as imperfect 
evidence, and attributable to the growth of the trees ; this, how- 
ever, is a fallacy, because trees grow by cellular elongation, and 
the addition of new cells. 

According to the rain-gauge kept by Dr. Ayres, near Stockton 
and Clay Streets, San Francisco, for the season 1861-62, the fall 
amounted to 40.6*74 inches ; the one kept by Mr. Tennent indicated 
49.2Y inches, and the one observed by Dr. Logan, at Sacramento, 
showed 35.549 inches for the same period ; while at Fort Gaston, 
Hoopa Valley, Klamath County, according to the published state- 
ment of Dr. C. A. Kirkpatrick, the fall from Sept., 1861, to June 
18th, 1862, amounted to 129.16 inches. Dr. Logan has further 
advised me, that according to the observations of W. A. Bigoli, of 
Red Dog, Nevada, there fell for twenty-four hours ending 9 a. m., 
Jan. 10th, 5.82 inches ; for twenty-four hours ending at the same 
period of the day on Jan. 11th, 5.50 inches were collected in the 
rain-gauge ; from which, and the amount of snow which was ob- 
served on the Big Tree Road, it is a fair inference that at least an 
average of four inches of rain fell within the great central water- 
shed of California. For, according to the published statement of

The total fall of snow from Nov. 11, 1861, to March 23, 1862, 
being 50 feet 2 inches. 

Dr, Logan remarks that, on the occasion of the first inundation 
at Sacramento, on Dec. Yth, 1861, " It commenced raining at 12 m., 
and ended at 9 a. m. on tlie 9th ; amount in inches, 2.570 ; the 
flood commenced at 10 a. m. of the 9th Dec, and at 10 p. M. had 
reached 2 feet 6 inches in my office ; by daylight it had all sub- 
sided. At the second inundation, on Jan. 5th, 1862, rain com- 
menced at 10 A. M. and ended at 1^ a. m. on the 6th ; during 
that interval there fell 2,690 inches. On Jan. 8th, rain commenced 
at 11 A, M. and ended at 7 a. m. on the 10th; between which pe- 
riods there fell 2.840 inches. On January 10th the flood reached 
my floor at 2 p. m., and at 8 p. m. came to a stand, at 3 feet 11 
inches above my floor. The Sacramento River rose during this 
night to 24 feet above low-water mark. On the 14th, the water 
had receded from my floor." 

There are two circumstances which will almost invariably be 
found the accompaniments of extremely heavy floods, namely, that 
of occu''ring early in the season, previous to the early fallen snow 
on the mountains having become hardened and compact — in the 
former state being more easily percolated, and consequently dis- 
solved by warm rains ; and secondly, the direction of the winds 
being continuous for some time from the southeast to southwest, 
by which means the tidal waters of the Bay of San Francisco be- 
come elevated beyond their normal condition, and to that 'extent 
impede the outflow. At tlie first flood, the former cause was the 



mrfj-t 



wBsm 



82

chief one ; at the second one, each cause had its influence. A slight 
reflection, however, will convince any one acquainted with these 
subjects, that all these phenomena will in future, as we have wit- 
nessed in the past, l)e likely to be coincident with great floods that 
may occur hereafter ; in fact, may rather be viewed as their cause, 
instead of an accidental accompaniment, and should, consequently, 
in any suggested palliations or remedies, be taken into calculation 
as a constant element. From tradition, it would appear that we 
may anticipate a flood once in about eight years, or twelve in a 
centuiy ; including in the latter number, about three more than 
usual heavy ones, an estimate which is in a great measure jus- 
tified by the geographical position of California. 

Assuming the entire water-shed drained through the Straits of 
Carquinez as occupying an area equal to 50,000,000 square miles, 
and that the rain-fall averaged over the entire area a depth equal 
to four inches in twenty-four hours — and for some days in January 
last it certainly must have exceeded that amount — it would be equal 
to 5, 377, 785 cubic feet per second, or four times the highest gauge 
ever made of the Mississippi at its highest floods. The whole of 
this immense volume has no outlet, excepting a passage not greater 
than 300,000 feet sectional area, with the further disadvantage 
that this outlet is subjected to tidal influence. Under such circimi- 
stances, that the low-lying country to the east of Carquinez should 
become inundated, and that for a Ico.g period, is not surprising. 

The inundation thus caused, extended over probably more than 
6,000,000 acres ; the remedy for which evil can only be sought in 
nisjuntain impoundage, for which purpose the physical character 
of the district surrounding the great central valley affords singu- 
larly great facilities, and in positions remarkably favorable for the 
utilization of the proposed imprisoned waters for mining, manufac- 
turing, and irrigating purposes, which, if placed under proper regu- 
lations, and combined with a judicious improvement of the lower 
Sacramento and San Joaquin, these rivers could, at no great 
expense, be made susceptible of floating an ocean going steamer to 
Sacramento and Stockton. The arrangements made for leveeing 



NOTABILIA OK THE FLOODS OP 18(U-'fi2.

the swiimp lands under the existing hiw, may be sufficiently effec- 
tive during small floods ; but should the same policy be pursued 
over any considerable area, it will be found to aggravate the evil, 
and the first large rain-fall will demonstrate its insufficiency. It 
will be for the Legislature to determine, whether the balance of the 
swamp land fund should be frittered away in fruitless and petty 
expedients, or form the nucleus of a fund, to be expended in per- 
manently shielding the low lands from the disastrous consequences 
of future floods, and at the same time greatly enlarging the general 
productive powers of the State. 

Among other curious phenomena connected with the late 
floods, was the fact of considerable breadths of tule floating in 
the bay, on the surface of which there was generally found a num- 
ber of land snakes, some of which floated into the Pacific, others 
got landed under th" wharves, and for a long time after the floods 
had in a great measure subsided, numerous snakes were to be 
found about the wharves of San Francisco. Most singular of all, 
however, was the fact that the Lay fishermen frequently caught 
fresh-water fish in the bay ; for from two to three months, the 
surface portion of the entire waters of the Bay of San Francisco 
consisted of fresh water, to the depth of from eighteen to twenty- 
four inches. Dr. W. 0. Ayres gave to the California Academy of 
Science the following list of fish so found : — Archoplitis interruptus, 
Catostonius occidentalism Catontomns labiatvs, Orthodon rrdcrolepidotus, 
Algausea formosa, Laomia comprcssa, Fti/chochdlus (/randis, My- 
lopharodon robnstm.

The oysters placed on oyster-beds fattened and died ; mussels 
became fresh and flavorless, but, as far as my observation went, 
did not perish. At the Golden Gate, for nearly a fortnight, the 
stream on the surface was continuously flowing toward the Pacific, 
composed entirely of fresh water, the tide not affecting the surface 
flow, and the water was brackish at the Farallone Islands.

Pacific Railroad. — An Act cf Congress, approved July 1, 1802, 
provided tor the construction of a railroad from the Missouri River 
to the Sacramento Valley. The name of the body corporate is the 
Pacific Union Railroad Company .^ and consists of more than 150 
commissioners. The amount of capital stock is fixed at $100,000,000, 
in 100,000 shares of $1,000 each. At the convention held at 
Chicago, Sept. 2, 1862, the Board of Commissioners elected the 
Hon. William B. Ogden, of Illinois, President of the Company ; 
Henry V. Poor, of the Bailroad Journal^ Secretary, and Thomas 
W. Olcott, of Albany, Treasurer. It was ordered that books of 
subscription to the stock should be opened on the first Wednesday 
in November, in the principal Eastein cities, and in San Francisco, 
Portland, Carson City, and Great Salt Lake City. 

Mining Excitements. — The year 1862 was prolific in gold-min- 
ing excitements. In British Columbia, a small extent of country 
at the head waters of the Eraser had been prospected during the 
season of 1861, with successful results in individual instances. 
The same was true in regard to a limited section of country drained 
by the eastern branches of Snake River, in AVashington Territory, 
some 5U0 miles from the ocean. The local newspaper press, the 
steamship companies, and the excitable tendencies of our people, 
combined to create a great "rush" to both localities in 1862. 
Large numbers of Canadians, direct from the east, joined our own

emigration to the Cariboo mines of British Columbia ; and it is 
estimated that not less than 30,000 adventurers visited the Nez 
Perces and Salmon River mines in Washington. In another direc- 
tion the Colorado gold mines, near the Colorado River, in the 
western part of Arizona, have attracted considerable attention, and 
are believed to be both rich and extensive. While the northern 
mines can be worked but half the year on account of deep snows 
and low temperature, the Colorado mines are subject to the oppo- 
site extremes of excessive heat and prolonged drought. 

That these three gold fields, particularly that of the Columbia 
Basin, will prove an important contribution to the wealth and re- 
sources of the Pacific States, cannot be doubted. During the 
nine months preceding Oct. 15, 1862, there had been shipped from 
British Columbia about $1,200,000, and from the Washington and 
Oregon mines $1,800,000; all exclusive of what was shipped 
through private channels. The yield of the Washoe Silver Region 
during the same period was about $4,000,000. 

The P. M. S. S. Co.'s steamer Golden Gate, plying between San 
Francisco and Panama, left the former port on the 21st of July, 
1862, with 388 passengers and crew, and was burned to the water's 
edge on Sunday, July 27th, fifteen miles northwest of Manzanillo, 
and one hundred and seventj'-six lives were lost. Cause : criminal 
negligence of the company to furnish adequate protection against 
accidents at sea. 

In October, 186? an opposition line to the Atlantic via the Nic- 
aragua Isthmus Transit was established. The Moses Taylor, which 
made the first trip, sailed from San Francisco on the 21st. 



CALIFORNIA. 

The Great Floods of 1861-62 were the most overwhelming 
and disactrous that have visited this state since its occupation 
by Americans. The first flood submerged the Sacramento Valley 
about the 10th of December, the water rising higher than in either 



86 



HAND-BOOK ALMAMAO. 



of the memorable floods of 1849 and 1852. For six weeks there- 
after an unusual amount of rain descended ; and during that time 
the deluge but partially subsided, the streams still carried tor- 
rents, and the low lands were overflow id. On the 24th of January 
the second flood attained its greatest height, and the Sacramento 
and San Joaquin Valleys were transformed into a broad inland 
sea, stretclung from the foot-hills of the Sierras to the Coast Range, 
and somewhat similar in extent and shape to Lake Michigan. 

The raging mountain torrents swept away bridges, fences, houses, 
mills, and the most durable improvements in their reach ; not un- 
frequently ploughing new channels through the country, and de- 
positing the debris of sand and rock upon large sections of culti- 
vated land. 

But the flood was not attended with unmixed evil. The streams 
that had been choked by tailings for yr'ars, were suddenly cleared 
of their obstructions, and extensive river-beds were again opened 
to the enterprise of the miner. The work of rebuilding bridges 
and mills, and of repairing other damages, called into profitable 
employment a large number of persons ; and trade and commerce 
and actual improvement suffered less interruption than might nat- 
urally have been expected, after so great a blow to our prosperity : 
and such are the wonderful energies and resources of our pei le, 
that in a few months the ravages of the flood had disappeared, and 
losses estimated at millions had been retrieved. 

Constitutional Amendments, — The amendments to the Consti- 
tution proposed by the members of the twelfth session of the 
Legislature, and adopted by the thirteenth session, were ratified by 
the people at the last general election. The effects of the amend- 
ments upon the three branches of the State Government are noted 
in the executive, legislative, and judicial departments.

4. BUTTE COUNTY. 



An unsuccessful effort was made to divide the county during the 
Legislative session of 1862. The object of the division was to 
detach the agricultural from the mineral portion of the county, by 
organizing the former into a new county, to be called Chico. 

Six men engaged in lumbering, were drowned in the Feather 
River, June Ist, 1862, about twenty miles north of Oroville. 

The Indians in the northern part of the county were very 
troublesome during the summer. In the latter part of June, their 
depredations culminated in the capture of three members of a 
family by the name of Hickok, residing near the Forks of Butte. 
A party of residents went in pursuit, and found the bodies of the 
two girls, aged respectively sixteen and thirteen, pierced with 
many arrows. The boy, who was younger, was never recovered. 
It was several months before the Indian disturbances were effec- 
tually quelled.

8. DEL NORTE COUNTY. 

An Indian Reservation was established in Smith River Valley by 
Superintendent Hanson, in February, 1862. The improvements 
of the Klamath Reservation having been destroyed by the flood, 
the Indians were removed to this valley because more eligibly lo- 
cated than the Klamath River for the reception of supplies and for 
military protection. 

The storm of December washed immense quantities of timber 
upon the beach, so that for miles it lay in a belt averaging 200 
yards in width, and in places several layers thick. By the same 
storm, 400 feet of the valuable wharf (1,300 feet long) at Crescent 
City was swept away.

11. HUMBOLDT COUNTY. 

The northeastern portion of this county has been the theatre of 
very serious Indian depredations during the past year. So early 
as the 2d of April, the citizens of Areata held a meeting " to con- 
sider the existing relations with the Indians," at which a series of 
resolutions were adopted, among which was the following : 

Besolved, That our community has been laid waste entirely ; all of the 
dwellings have been burnt to the east of the Hoopa trail, "except one now 
occupied by the troops," for a distance of near 50 miles east and south; the 
cattle and other property destroyed to a great extent; our citizens have been 
murdered by the score ; the women and little children have been driven to 
our village and are nearly destitute. For more than one year have citizens 
been prevented from going to the country except at great risk of their lives. 
Improvement of any Hnd is now out of the question, and we have been mor- 
tified by seeing our population steadily take their departure for other parts 
of the country affording more security. 

- Although more efficient measures were soon after adopted, the 
Indians continued to be the terror of the community for several 
months. Colonel Lippitt, the commander of the Humboldt military

district, established new posts, and arranged his meagre forces to 
the best advantage ; but the wily foe, well armed, and in bands of 
from 40 to 200, lurked in inaccessible or unknown retreats, or if 
surprised by the vigilance of the soldiers, retired to others equally 
secret and difficult of access, and thus from their intimate knowl- 
edge of the topography of this wild region, they existed almost 
with impunity in the vicinity of United States troops. It would 
require more space than we desire to give, to mention even the 
notable instances of their daring and depredations.

12. KLAMATH COUNTY. 

The floods of 1861-62 did great damage in this county. The 
rivers, flowing through channels at the bottom of narrow, deep 
canons, had no chance to spread, and rose proportionately high ; 
in one place (at the mouth of the Salmon River) the Klamath rose 
over 100 feet above its ordinary level, sweeping away a wire sus- 
pension bridge, 90 feet high. Immense land slides took place, 
making precipices of the steep mountain slopes, and temporarily 
damming the rivers, when the accumulated waters suddenly broke 
forth, carrying every thing before them. Some of the gulches 
were cleared of mills, flumes, dams, houses, and improvements of

every character, even to the Uttle patches of soil that were culti- 
vated. New developments were made, however, through the 
agency of the flood ; the land slides disclosed hitherto hidden 
treasures, and the torrents sluiced out the yielding mountain sides 
depositing new beds of auriferous sand on the bars below, 

Clinton Woodford, Esq., Inspector of the port of Trinidad, and 
formerly an attorney at Orleans Bar, was shot by some hand un- 
known on the 2d of July. The homicide was supposed to have 
resulted from a previous controversy with Mr. Marx, of Nordheimer 
and Marx.

14. LOS ANGELES COUNTY. 

A water-spout occurred on the 16th of August, in San Francis- 
quito Canon, about 00 miles north of Los Angeles, which is thus 
described : 

" About 1 p. M, of that day, a heavy rain cloud which had been 
hovering over the canon, burst with a noise like thunder, discharg- 
ing a huge volume of water, instantly filling up the canon with a 
roaring stream, carrying every thing along in its resistless course. 
A party from Kern River, on their way to Los Angeles, were in the 
canon, of which party one, Mrs. C. J. Chevalier, was drowned. 
The water in the canon when the party entered it, was less than 
three inches, and when the torrent came, it was over fifteen feet 
deep. It was past daylight the next morning ere the torrent sub- 
sided." 

Several causes have quickened Los Angeles into new life. It is 
the supply depot for the military forces that have been accumu- 
lating in the southern part of the state. The goods destined for 
the rapidly developing silver region of Coro, and for the new gold 
mines of Colorado River, find their most convenient route through 
Los Angeles. 

Colonel E. J. C. Kewen, member of Assembly from this county, 
was arrested on a charge of treason, October Yth, 1862, and con- 
veyed, under military escort, to Fort Alcatraz.

An unparalleled outbreak of state prisoners occurred at San Quen- 
tin, on the 22d of July, whereby one hundred and fifty convicts 
escaped. They captured Lieutenant Governor Chellis in their 
stampede, and bore him along for a considerable distance, to pro- 
tect themselves from being fired upon by the guard, but he was 
finally set down unharmed. The major portion of the prisoners 
were recovered next day, and, after pursuit, roll-call showed that 
thirty-three were missing, twenty-two wounded, and three killed. 
Many of the missing were afterward captured.

16. MARIPOSA COUNTY. 

The floods Avere very disastrous on the Merced River and its 
tributaries. In the neighborhood of Fremont's mills it rose ten 
feet higher than was ever before known. About tlie heads of the 
Chowchilla tremendous land-slides occurred. One is said to ha\e 
been of the area of forty acres, to the depth, in places, of one hun- 
dred feet, bearing with it masses of trees six and eight feet in 
diameter. 

A fire at Hornitos, on the 20th of August, destroyed about 
$30,000 worth of property. 

Veins of silver. Relieved to be both rich and extensive, were 
discovered six miles south of Mariposa, in September, and created 
a local excitement. 

L. A. Holmes, the witty and humorous editor of the Mariposa 
Gazette and Visalia Delta, died in September, 18G2. His decease 
was a loss to the county and the state.

19. MONO COUNTY. 

An extraordinary flood occurred in Mono County, on the 11th of 
January, occasioned by a rain of three days duration falling on a 
heavy body of snow. Great damage was sustained at Aurora, 
which lies at the convergence of several gulches. The streets were 
converted into rivers, whose frenzied currents left destruction in 
their wake. The stone buildings were undermined and fell with 
crash after crash, and the adobe buildings were dissolved into 
heaps of mud. The disaster was attended with loss of life on Boda 
Creek. 

The Esmeralda Star newspaper was established May 10, 1802. 

The mineral wealth of Esmeralda has been rapidly developed 
during the year. Several ledges, which had held but a nominal 
price in market, rose to a high figure after quartz mills were fairly 
in operation. In the month of August, the Wide West ledge ap- 
preciated from $200 to §; 1,000.

22. NEVADA COUNTY. 

A gale visited this county on the 15th and 16th of November, 

1861. During its prevalence trees were uprooted, houses blown 
down, and valuable flumes destroyed. 

The great flood of 1861-2 wrought considerable damage to the 
quartz mining interests of Grass Valley. The mines were filled 
with water, and the mills ceased to run, throwing out of employ- 
ment 1,500 miners. It was estimated that, while the storm con- 
tinued, the daily loss accruing to Grass Valley amounted to $10,000. 
Notwithstanding the great losses occasioned by the storm, the 
property valuation of the county, for the year ending June 30th, 

1862, was half a million more than for the previous year — an evi- 
dence of the solid prosperity of the county. 

A new wire suspension bridge has been constructed across Deer 
Creek, at Nevada City, at a cost of $12,000. It is said to be the 
largest one in the state. The cables are 503 feet long, and the 
surface of the suspended roadway is 4,700 square feet.

The construction of the Red Bluff wagon road has developed a 
new and practical route through this county, via Noble's Pass and 
Honey Lake to the Humboldt River mining region. By this route 
the mines are brought within 175 miles of navigation, making the 
cost of transportation materially less than by the rival routes of 
Henness Pass or Placerville. ..^ 

Important discoveries in gold, silver, and copper have been made 
in this county during the past year. „ . _, • ,>j

25. SACRAMENTO COUNTY. 

The great floods of 1861-62 were peculiarly disastrous to the 
capital of the State. The swollen current of the American River 
burst through the levees of Sacramento City, and submerged the 
whole town to a depth of from two to eighteen feet. The water 
not only entered the lower stories of all the dwellings, but in many 
cases invaded the second, and in the southern part of the city small 
houses were lifted from their foundations, and overturned or floated 
off by the tide. The business streets were transformed into Vene- 
tian canals, and row-beat? and sailing craft were substituted for 
land vehicles. At one time the steamer Gem, attempting to as- 
cend the American River, was drawn through the crevasse, and 
lodged in an orchard one hundred rods from the river. It is im- 
possible to estimate with precision the damage which the city 
sustained through the flood. It probably did not fall short of 
$2,000,000. But the city has the recuperative power to recover 
from the blow. She has already built a substantial bulkhead, 
impervious to future floods, and she will continue to be the leading 
commercial city of the interior. ' 

Two educational conventions, three political conventions, and 
the State Agricultural Fair were held at Sacramento in the year 
1862. , , .

29. SAN JOAQUIN COUNTY. 

The Waterloo House, ten miles north of Stockton, has been 
made doubly famous in connection with warlike exploits. In No- 
vember, 1861, John Balkwill resisted an attempt to eject him from 
the premises. He barricaded his house, and threw up earthworks 
around it, and bade defiance to an enemy armed with a nine-

pounder and small arms. After several rounds of shot on both 
sides, the officers of the law interposed in behalf of the besieged, 
and hostilities were suspended. 

In May, 1862, an attempt was made by the s(iuattera and settlers 
on Comstock's Ranch, near the Waterloo House, to resist a writ of 
ejectment, served by the sheriff. From fifty to eighty armed men 
intrenched themselves, and prepared to resist any force, civil or 
military, tluit might be brought against them. For a time blood- 
shed was imminent, as the people were in favor of executing the law 
at all hazards ; but better counsels prevailed on tlio part of the 
settlers, and the claims were legally adjusted. 

Miss Abigail B. Monroe was accidentally drowned in the San 
Joaquin River, on the 25th of June. She formed one of a party 
on a pleasure excursion in a sail-boat. 

The third annual fair of the San Joaquin Valley Agricultural 
Society was held at Stockton, commencing Sept. 0, 1862.

An iwalanche occurred at Orum Hill, near Pine Grove, February 
13, 1862, occasioning the loss of two lives: over three acres of 
enow slid down the mountain side, burying a miner's cabin, and

great success. Large chispas have been taken, and new mining 
localities have been established, and general prosperity character- 
izes the mining season of 1862.

Bakor, whom he was attempting; to arrest. Campbell shot Baker 
and mortally wounded him. At the same moment a son of Baker 
shot Campbell, killinf^ him Instantly. 

The unsettled condition of land titles in Sonoma County contin- 
ues to cause trouble, litigation, and resistance to law. The settlers 
on the Kaneho Sotoyome, in the Russian River Valley, made au 
armed resistance to the execution of wi-its of restitution, in 
Juno. On the 17th of July, Sheriff Bowles w(!nt to the Ranch with 
a posse of 225 men to serve a writ against Cornelius Bice, one of 
the occupant;-, and was met by a body of sixty armed men. Ilia 
own men being unarmed, he was unal)le to execute his con)mission. 
In September, the (tovernor having ordered out the militia, two 
companies proceeded froui Petuluma to the Ranch, and on the 25th 
ejected the occupants ; but no sooner had the militia left than the 
settlers returned to the Ranch. At the following session of the 
District (\)urt, proceedings were instituted against the settlers, 
effectually dispossessing them of the land. 

The Sonoma County Agricultural and Mechanical Fair was held 
in conjunction with Napa County, at Sonoma, commencing October 
lih, 1862.

40. STANISLAUS COUNTY. 

The flood in this county was attended with loss of life and great 
destruction of property along the course of the Stanislaus River. 
About one-half of the town of Knight's Ferry, an enterprising place 
in the foot-hills, was literally swept away by the impetuous current 
of the swollen stream. The river rose twelve feet higher at this 
place than the highest previous water-mark, and the current was 
sufficiently strong to propel mill-stones, iron safes, and huge boul- 
ders. The bridge, flour mills, and business houses, with their con- 
tents, on the lower side of Main street, were carried away. But 
with the characteristic spirit of California towns, the energetic in- 
habitants unmediately began to repair their losses, scarcely wait- 
ing for the floods to abate, and now the place presents a better 
appearance than before.

42. TEHAMA COUNTY. 

The last Legislature granted a franchise for an important wagon 
road connecting Red Bluff, via Noble's Pass and Honey Lake, with 
the Humboldt mines of Nevada Territory. The road has been 
improved and much travelled during the past season. 

L. H. Sanborn, Esq., a prominent member of the county bar at 
Red Bluflf; died June 23, 1862. 

There are two Indian reservations in this county — the Home 
Cult, well conducted and successful, and the Nome Lackee, averred 
to be in a " miserable condition." From the latter, bands of In- 
dians have several times escaped and made incursions upon the 
neighboring ranches. The first important raid of this character 
was made by thirty partially-armed Indians on the 30th of April. 
The whites organized at once, pursued, and surprised them May 
4th, when a fight occurred in which seventeen Indians and two 
whites were killed.

43. TRINITY COUNTY. 

The Weaverville Journal of December 14, 1861, referring to the 
flood in Trinity River, which was then at its height, says it was 
" the greatest ever known, even by the Indians, for half a century. 
The river, in places where it Avas confined, rose seventy feet 
above water mark ; in other places where it was wide, the banks 
caved, and cultivated ranches were carried away. Every mining 
improvement on the river for one hundred miles has been destroyed, 
and more than one-half the bar aud river miners are ruined." 
The loss was estimated at $150,000. 

But, as has been shown in Klamath County, the flood compen- 
sated for private losses by benefiting the public at large. The 
Jotimal^ above quoted, says, at a later date : " The immense body 
of water rushing down the stream has washed heavy deposits of 
earth off many flats and bars, leaving nothing for the miner to do 
but to wash the pay dirt. In some instances, the entire bed of the 
stream has been changed and the old channel is nearly dry, saving 
to the miner much expense in damming and fluming." 

A heavy rain storm occurred on the 12th of June at Weaverville.

47. YUBA COUNTY. 

The flood of 1861-2 left traces in this county. A small portion 
of the city of Marysville was inundated by the first rise of Decem- 
ber, ^861, and several buildings undermined. Portions of culti- 
vated land along the courses of the streams were washed away. 
Hundreds of acres of the flats of Bear River were covered with 
sand and tailings brought down by the mountain torrents, and 
rendered unfit for agricultural purposes. The wool-growers of the 
county were said to be heavy losers. 

Upon the accession of Horace Beach to the office of County Col- 
lector, it was discovered that his predecessor, John S. Love, was a 
defaulter to the extent of from $20,000 to $30,000.

OREGOK 



A great flood deluged the Willamette Valley in December, 1861. 
A heavy fall of rain, combined with the melting snows of the cas- 
cades, swelled the mountain brooks to destructive torrents, and 
raised the Willamette River above its banks, inundating extensive 
tracts of cultivated land in the valley, and undermining the towns 
and villages along its course. The flood attained its greatest 
height on the 5th of December, at which time it is said to have 
been much greater in extent than any that has preceded it since

The Umpciua River also overflowed its banks, aini flooded the 
adjacent country ; but the valley being less thickly settled, the 
destruction of property was limited. 

The unusual fall of snow east of the Cascades, during the winter 
of 1861-'62, gave rise to a June flood in the lower Columbia, of 
unprecedented height. The Dalles was inundated, and the Willa- 
mette was backed up so that the river stood at Portland, on the 
14th of June, twenty-eight feet above low-water mark, completely 
deluging the lower part of the city. 

Important discoveries of gold, in placers and quartz, have been 
-made In eastern Oregon and Washington. The " rush" of 30,000 
adventurers to the new mining field has created a home market for 
the productions of this State. Much of the overland emigration 
was diverted to Oregon, and will permanantly occupy the rich 
farming land of Willamette Valley. Thus a great impetus haa 
been g, en to the development of the mineral and agricultural 
wealth of the State ; and notwithstanding the overwhelming losses 
by flood, it has, during the past year, been blessed with unwonted 
prosperity. 

The increase of populat= i in the northeastern part has made 
new municipal organizatiout necessary, and two new counties, 
Baker and Umatilla, have been erected — the former em]> 'acing the 
valleys of Grande Rondc, Powder and Burnt rivers, western afflu- 
ents of Snake river; and the latter including the mining region of 
John Day and Umatilla rivt-rs, tributaries of the Col' aibia.

coast. It is the shipping point for the state of Oregon and the 
vast mining region which is being developed in the basin of the 
Upper Columbia. During the past year it has made steady and 
rapid advances in population, wealth, and solid business prosperity. 
Situated at the convergence of the Willamette, Columbia, and

come a great city, and every indication points to the fulfilment of 

her noble destiny.

drawn from all parts of the coast and from the east a large emi- 
gration, nearly trebling the population of the territory. They 
have yielded large and satisfactory returns in gold ; over $3,000,000 
(it is estimated) having been shipped from the mines of Washing- 
ton and Oregon, through public and private channels. Enter- 
prising adventurers have been stimulated to prospect more thor- 
oughly portions of the great l)asin of the Upper Columbia, and new 
Melds of mineral wealth have rewarded their eftbrts, and the gold 
producing area of the Pacific States has been enlarged. 

Two new counties, Idaho and Xez Perce, were created from 
Shoshone County by the Legislative Assembly, Dec. 20, 1861. 

The coldest weather ever experienced on Puget Sound of which 
there is any record, occurred in January, 18B2. During that and 
the preceding month a large amount of rain and snow fell, corre- 
sponding to the (ixtraordinar}- rain fall of Oregon and California. 
At Vancouver, on the IVth of Janunry iit sunrise, the mercury 
stood lO*-"" below zero.

For several years past, Tiioutenant John Miillan, U. S. A., has been 
engaged in constructing a wagon road from Fort Benton, at the 
head of present navigation on the Missouri River, to Walla Walla, 
near the bend of the Columbia. He completed this important 
work in August, 1862, and the navigable waters of those two 
streams flowing to opposite oceans, were luiited l)y a good moun- 
tain road, 624 miles in length.

r>. IDAHO COUNTY. 

Idaho County, organized December 20, 1861, comprises all that 
portion of what was Shoshone County lying south of the dividing 
ridge between the (Clearwater and Salmon Rivers. The name, ac- 
cording to one authority, is the Indian word for "star," but tlio 
signification popularly attributed to it is, " Gem of the Moimtains." 
Within its limits lie the rich gold fields of Salmon River, already 
possessing a world-w'de fame. Xew and important discoveries 
have recently been made on Boise River. It is probable that the 
greater portion of che county abounds in auriferous wealth. 

The scenery in .he neighborhood of Salmon River is remarkable 
and impi-essive. The stream flows between perpendicular walls of 
rock, from five hundred to two thousand feet high. 



ISLAND COUNTY. 






Florence City is situated on an elevated plateau in the heart of 
a wild mountainous region, its altitude being so great that snow 
exists in the vicinity the major portion-of the year. It is a striking 
example of the rapid growth of our mining towns. In the height 
of the mining season, and before the first year of its settlement 
was complete, its population exceeded 5,000.

12. MISSOULA COUNTY. 

A considerable emigration entered Washington Territory via 
Lieut. Mullan's wagon road, having ascended the Missouri River as 
far as Fort Benton on boats. The fine agricultural lands along the 
course of Mullan's road, and in the valleys of Bitter Root, Black- 
foot, and Hell Gate rivers, are being occupied for farming and 
grazing purposes. Gold has been found in the neit;hborhood of 
each of the above named streams. The newly developed mineral 
wealth of this extensive district, together with its agricultural ad- 
vantages and improved means of communication, are likely to work 
important results in its immediate future. 

Members of Legislative Assembly. 

Member of Council. — Hon. J. M. Moore, Pierce City, 1864. 
Representative — Hon. L. F. Blake, Fort Owen.

from Snake River eastvard to the Bitter Root Mountains. Elk 
City, the centre of a gold mining district ; Lewiston, the head of 
navigation on the Snake River, and Kamas Prairie, a fertile agri- 
cultural expanse, lie T/ithin its limits. The name of the county is 
derived from a large, powerful, and friendly Indian tribe, within 
whose reservation nearly the whole county lies. Nearly all the 
travel to the Salmon River mines passes through Nez Perce 
County.

NEVADA TERlirTOKY. 



a4U 



NEVADA TERRITORY. 



Congress at its last session transferred the eastern boundary of 
Nevada from the thirty-ninth to the thirty-eighth degree of longi- 
tude, thereby adding nearly one-fourth to the extent of the ter- 
ritory. 

The past year has been fruitful in rfisults. It opened with a 
flood, which destroyed property estimated at from $200,000 to 
$1,000,000. This was followed by a stampede to the Salmon River 
mines which still further drained the territory of the means of de- 
veloping its resources. But these resources were too well known, 
iro vast and too multiform to remain undeveloped. The damaged 
mills were repaired and put into operation, and new ones were 
erected to meet the increased demand ; the busy hum of industry 
sounded on every hand, and unexampled prosperity followed. 
Ophir stock rose from $1,800 to $3,600 per foot. Other mines 
appreciated in a corresponding degree. Capitalists, and profes- 
sional and business men who came over from California to specu- 
late, remained to engage in business, build houses and homes, and 
permanently invest their capital. Virginia, Gold Hill, Silver, and 
Carson Cities have grown with magical rapidity, and the first 
named, numbering several thousand inhabitants, already wears a 
metropolitan aspect. 

It is computed that 1,000 wagon teams are engaged in carrying 
freight from Sacramento Valley to Washoe. The teams make 
about four trips during the season, hauling on an average two and 
a half tons at a load, at six to seven cents per pound. Thus we 
have an aggregate of 10,000 tons of freight transported over the 
mountains in one season, at a probable cost of $1,300,000. These 
figures hint strongly at the need of a railroad. .,„

8. ESMERALDA COUNTY. 

Esmeralda is a larpje county, occupyinp^ the southern part of the 
Territory, and inehidea witliin its limits Walker's Lake — a large 
body of water without an outlet, and the unexplored region east 
of it. The Esmeralda District, from which the county takes its 
name, is in the western part — the richest ledges and the town of 
Aurora lying beyond the border, in California. The Van Horn 
and several other silver districts of less impoi-tance than the Es- 
meralda, lie wholly or partly in this county. The gold placer 
diggings on Walker River, have been worked with success. A 
coal mining district has been laid out on the East Walker.

4. HUMBOLDT COUNTY. 

Humboldt County occupies the northeastern portion of Nevada 
Territoi'v, embracing nearly one-third of its extent. Humboldt 
River, which traverses the county from east to west, after forming 
a lake, finally sinks. Li the bend of the river, and near the centre 
of the Territory, exists the rich Humboldt silver raining district, 
the ledges cropping out of a range of mountains which, with its 
spars, does not exceed thirty miles in length, from north to south, 
by twelve or fifteen miles in breadth. Gold, quicksilver, lead, and 
antimony, are also found in the Humboldt mining region. 

The disparaging accounts of Humboldt River — its impure 
waters, alkaline flats, and the parched and barren deserts along its 
course, seem to be inapplicable to this and the other mountainous 
masses adjacent to the stream, foy these are favored with abun- 
dance of pure water, vegetation of thrifty growth, and a compara- 
tively genial climate.

part but little is known. Pyramid Lake, the largest body of water 
in the Territory, occupies the southern part. West of the lake are 
situated the fine grazing districts of Long and Honey Lake Valleys, 
lying mainly, however, in Cahfornia.

7. ORMSBY COUNTY. 

Ornisby County extends from Lake Bigler over the east summit 
of the Sierras, across Carson River to the western boundary of 
Lyon County. The fine agricultural district of Eagle Valley lies 
in this County. The Sierras abound in valuable timber, with elig- 
ible mill sites. Carson River furnishes unlimited water power, and 
numerous quartz mills are in operation on its banks. The mineral 
resources are various, and believed to be extensive — silver and 
gold quartz lodes having been discovered in various parts of the 
county. The ledges on Clear Creek, a short distance below Car- 
son City, are being developed with great vigor. Tunnels driven 
bet^reen two and three thousand feet, into the hills, at this point, 
are among the gigantic enterprises of the Territory.

8. STOREY COUNTY. 

The Virginia district, containing the Comstock Lode — the rich- 
est silver mine known to exist, and the Gold Hill district, second 
only to the Virginia district in importance, lie mainly within the 
limits of Storey County, rendering it the first county in the terri- 
tory in mineral wealth and productiveness. Immense capital and 
energy have been expended in the erection of reduction works 
and quartz mills, and tunnels several thousand feet in length have 
been driven into the mountains, for the purpose of tapping the 
mines hundreds of feet below ths surface. 

The October contribution to the Sanitary Fund by Storey County 
was made in the shape of eight massive silver bars, worth $20,226.22. 
Five of the bars weighed 111 pounds each. 

Virginia City appears to be the supply depot for the territory. 
The principal wholesale houses are located here, and it is growing 
and spreading rapidly on every side. Public buildings, of a sub- 
stantial character, are going up which will compare favorably with 
those of older and larger cities.

9. WASHOE COUNTY. 

Washoe Lake, a small sheet of water in the southeastern part of 
Washoe ('ounty, not only contributed its name to the county in 
which it lies, but to the whole silver region bordering on Carson 
River. The county of Washoe lies between Storey County on the 
east and the boundary of California, and extends from Pyramid 
Lake on the north to Lake Bigler on the south. Washoe Valley 
and the chain of valleys extending northward along the course of 
Steamboat Creek and Truckee River, contain more or less agricul- 
tural and grazing land. An abundance of timber exists in the 
mountains, and saw-mills are in active operation along their base. 
Gold, silver, lead, and other minerals are profitably mined in this 
county. Tii»> Ophir Works, the most extensive reduction works in 
the territor , are locat. I on the western side of Washoe Valley, 
and are to be > mnected with the Ophir iidne at Virginia City, by a 
railroad.

UTAH TERRITOEY. 



With the exception of Colorado, no State or Tertitory in the 
Union is so regular in its outlines as Utah, Its boundaries are 
entirely political or artificial, aud were it not for the notch in the 
northeastern part, caused by the corner of Nebraska, its form 
would be almost a square. The 109th degree of longitude divides 
it from Colorado on the east, and the 115th from Nevada on the 
west. The 37th parallel of latitude separates it from New Mexico 
on the south, and the 42d from Washington on the north. 

A high and rugged spur of the Rocky Mountains, generally des- 
ignated the Wasatch Range, though in places known as the 
Bear and Uinta Mountains, traverses the territory from north to 
south. At the base of these mountains, on the west, lies Great 
Salt Lake and the chain of valleys stretching southward for 200 
miles. In these valleys, and on the eastern border of Great Salt 
Lake, peaches, apples, pears, plums, apricots, grapes, currants, 
and other fruits are siiccessfully cultivated, and also the various 
grains and vegetables grown in the temperate zone. The largest 
streams are Green and Grand Rivers, which unite and form the 
Colorado. The general character of the territory is that of moun- 
tain and desert. The streams sink as they emerge from the moun- 
tains, and many of them are entirely absorbed by the thirsty soil,

before they have advanced six miles into the valleys. The lakes 
are generally saline, Great Salt Lake being the largest of that 
character in America. Extensive tracts of land, apparently of 
excellent quality, are ruined by the abundant presence of alkali, 
which corrodes vegetation. 

The population, about 80,000, is composed almost exclusively of 
a religious sect who style themselves Latter Day Saints, and are 
popularly known as Mormons. An imposing temple is in process 
of erection at Great ?:^.lt Lake City, where the wealth, power, and 
influence' of the church are centralized, and where its head, Presi- 
dent Biigham Young, ri sides. - . .,

is a Bishop, with two counsellors. Great Salt Lake City is divided 
into twenty wards. Edward Hunter is the presiding Bishop. 

Membership. — In the Territory, the numerical membership of the 
church will nearly correspond with the population. Throughout 
the United States there are branches and membf rs of the church, 
but at present so disorganized that the number is not known. 

There are organized branches and conferences of the church 
throughout England, Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Denmark, Norway, 
Italy, Switzerland, the Germanic States, and in other parts of the 
world. ..

duces abundantly the hardier grains and vegetables. The valley 
is subject to long and severe winters, owing to its elevation, and 
the snowy mountains surrounding it.

5. GREAT SALT LAKE COUNTY. 

This county lies south and east of the southern extremity of 
Great Salt Lake, and includes all its islands. The land best suited 
for cultivation lies between Jordan River and the Wasatch Moun- 
tains. Upon the several streams issuing from the latter, mills

Iron County, like Beaver, but a few miles in width, extends 
entirely across the southern part of the Territory. The western 
portion is an unmitigated desert, broken by a few dry ranges of 
mountains. The eastern part is very rugged and mountainous, 
with a few small elevated valleys. There is some white pine 
timber, of superior quality, near the summits of the mountains. 
Magnetic and other iron ores are abundant, and some coal veins 
have been opened and brought into use. Ancient hieroglyphics

Mount Nebo, an isolated, snow-capped summit, near the centre 
of the Territory, is on the northeastern boundary of Juab County, 
Which receives its name from the small, fertile valley of Juab, in 
its eastern part. Salt springs of excellent quality, and rock salt, 
are found in the mountains. The region is too elevated and the 
climate too cold for any but the hardier fruits and vegetables.

The important valley of San Pe^e, forty miles long by ten broad, 
gives its name to this county, whiiih lies east of Juab and Millard, 
and 100 miles south of Great Sak Lake. This valley lies at the 
western base of the southern extension of the Wasatch Mountains, 
and is well watered by the San Pete River and its several affluents, 
which, uniting, form the Sevier River. Saleratus is gathered in 
considerable quantities from natural beds. Thin veins of coal 
have been traced in^the mountains. Pino timber, cedar for fuel, 
and rock for building purposes exist in abundance. None but the 
more hardy fruits and grains mature.

Prairie, affords abundant summer grazing. Coal veins have been 
worked near Chalk Creek. There is excellent pine timber in the 
mountains, and lumbering and grazing are the principal employ-

14. UTAH COUNTY. 

Utah Lake, a fine body of fresh water, whose extreme length 
and breadth are 35 miles by 15, is situated near the centre of this 
county, and separates its two principal valleys, Utah and Cedar. 
The lake is connected with Great Salt Lake by the Jordan River, 
and is said to correspond to the Sea of Galilee, in Palestine, con- 
nected by the river Jordan with the Dead Sea. Utah Valley, east 
of the lake, is watered by several streams rising in the Wasatch 
Mountains, which in this county are remarkable for their rugged 
character. Cedar Valley, in the west part of the county, is of 
considerable altitude, and a good grazing district. Fort Crittenden 
is located in the northern part.

• . , 15. WASATCH COUNTY. 

The scenery of Wasatch County is not surpassed by that of any 
other portion of Utah Territory. It lies east of Great Salt Lake 
and Utah Counties, and is reached by means of a road costing 
$80,000, built along the Provo River, which runs through a mag- 
nificent gorge, a distance of 15 miles. Cascade Creek, coming from 
the south, falls over a precipice, into the canon, from a height of 
1,000 feet. At its upper end the canon widens into a fine moun- 
tain-locked valley, 30 rniles long by 10 miles wide, watered with 
several beautiful creeks and many springs. At Hot Spring Town, 
several thermal springs have formed immense caldrons of limo- 
stone, some of them 40 or 50 feet deep, with hot water in the bot- 
tom, of various colors and temperatures.

Wasatch range — forming the south rim of the Great Basin, trav- 
erses this, the most southern county in the Territory, in an east 
and west direction. In the eastern part, the Colorado runs 
through an impassable mountain gorge. Several fine valleys, on 
the head waters of the Rio Virgin, at the southern base of the 
mountains, enjoy a semi-torrid temperature, in which the attempt 
to grow cotton has been made, with uncertain results.

17. WEBER COUNTY. 

The two large streams, Ogden and Weber Rivers, flow through 
this county from the Wasatch Mountains to Great Salt Lake. 
Considerable tracts of valuable farming land, easily irrigated, 
render this an important agricultural county. Ogden Valley, high 
in the mountains, is about 20 by 10 miles, and affords an excellent 
summer range for stock. . i.^^.^,..

BRITISH COLONIES " 

Of British Columbia and Vancouver Island. 

These Colonies comprise the British Possessions west of the 
Rockv Mountains. 



I. BRITISH COLUMBIA. 

British Columbia lies north of the 49th parallel and west of the 
Rocky Mountains. It is about 300 miles wide, from east to west, 
and is traversed from north to south by broken chains of high and 
rugged mountains. Between the ranges lie broad expanses of 
table lands, diversified with lakes, prairies, and timber belts. The

Streams are rapid and generally gold-bearing. The principal ones 
are the Frazer, flowing southward into the Gulf of Georgia, the 
Stikeen, flowing westward into the Pacific, and Peace River, flow- 
ing northeastward into Great Slave Lake. 

Cariboo, the famous mining district, is about 50 miles long, 
from east to Avest, by 20 broad, and includes the placers on many 
of the streams which flow into Frazer River, between its source 
in the Rocky Mountains and the point where it bends southward. 
The district is about 500 miles from the mouth of the Frazer, by 
the travelled route. Valuable auriferous deposits are also found 
in the head waters and principal affluents of each of the other 
streams above mentioned.

2. VANCOUVER ISLAND. 

Vancouver Island is divided from Washington Territory by the 
Strait of San Juan de Fuca, and from British Columbia by the 
Gulf of Georgia. " Of an elongated form, it is essentially a moun- 
tain ridge, attaining at Mount Avrowsmith, an elevation of 5,900 
feet. Cut up by numerous inlets of the sea, in no case does the 
water-shed suffice to give a navigable stream, though numerous 
fresh water lakes are found, imbosomed amongst the spurs of the 
mountain ranges. In length three hundred miles, with an average 
breadth of thirty to fifty, its outline is boldly picturesque ; its 
shores are characterized by abrupt cliffs, rocky promontories, 
magnificent harbors, sheltered coves, and pebbly beaches. * * 
The climate approximates closely to that of Great Britain, modi- 
fied by special circumstances connected with its physical geogra- 
phy." — Prize Essay by Charles Forbes^ Esq. 

The principal resources are coal, timber, and fisheries. The 
product of the coal mines of Narraimo in 1861, was about 15,000 
tons. 

The free port of Victoria, situated on a commodious harbor, at 
the southeastern extremity of the Island, is the capital of the 
colony, and the principal commercial town in the British Posses- 
sions on the North Pacific coast. .

Zodiacal Light. — The Zodiacal Light is a faint light resembling 
the tail of a comet, and is seen at certain seasons of the year, fol- 
lowing the course of the Sun, after evening twilight, or preceding 
his approach in the morning sky. 

It was formerly held to be the atmosphere of the Sun. It has 
also been supposed to be a nebulous body revolving around the 
Sun. From recent observations, made with care in various parts 
of tropical America, there appears to be strong evidence that the 
Zodiacal Light is a belt which entirely S!urr(yunds the Earth. 

Velocity of the Earth's Motion. — The Earth moves forward 
rn its orbit 1,640,000 miles per day, 68,000 miles per hour, 1,100 
miles per minute, and nearly 19 miles every second.
